Working at Truett Hurst represents the culmination of my life-long passion for food, and I am especially proud of our organic and Biodynamic farming ethos. I have had the opportunity to see, first-hand, the incredible connection between our ecological approach to viticulture and the quality that results in our wines.
Proving that following your heart opens your career path to new and exciting possibilities, several years ago Karen began pursuing her life-long passion in food, obtaining her chef and nutrition certifications. She learned the culinary foundations, as well the role that healthy food plays in nutrition and well-being. Through her gastronomic journey, Karen also discovered the intimate connection between food and wine. She is absolutely delighted working in an industry that contributes to the role wine and food has in bringing people together- families, friends, and communities.
